    Gabby Petito: Missing woman was seen in Colorado in July | 9news.com

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo — A Florida woman whose disappearance has made national headlines visited an Old Colorado City pizzeria during a recent trip to Colorado Springs, the restaurant announced Thursday.

    Gabrielle "Gabby" Petito "visited Slice420 in Old Colorado City around July 8, 2021, during her visit to Colorado Springs, and should we find that we have any information that may be relevant to this missing person investigation, we will share that with law enforcement immediately," a statement on the restaurant's Facebook page reads.

    "Our hearts are absolutely broken for Gabby’s friends and family as they search for her, and our entire team is praying without end that she is located safely and reunited with those who love her very soon."

    The response came after a video on Petito's Instagram page surfaced showing her opening a Slice420 pizza box while in Old Colorado City. The timestamp says the video is from 10 weeks ago. Petito's Instagram also shows her visiting the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.

    Well put. Gabby needs to be found.

    The police report states "“No one reported that the male struck the female." There was more than one report (Gabby and the witness) that she struck him. But the whole thing strikes me as two not-yet-mature people, one or both of whom have mental health issues, in a stressful situation. What I don't see, AT THIS POINT, is proof of a pattern of abusive control by Brian that strongly supports the theory that he murdered her. We may find out that was the case, but at this point, suggestions one way or the other are more a product of people projecting their opinions about domestic violence, one way or the other, rather than what we know about what happened in this case.

    I think this is a more than a case of “he just left her”. The area that they would have been in (approaching Yellowstone from the West entrance) is a very well traveled area. LE should be able to easily confirm if they went through the west entrance into the park. That being said, I don’t understand how he could just leave her and we’d be at this point.

    Let’s say they were camping in a tent and he gets up and leaves with the van in the middle of the night. If there was nobody in the immediate area, she would have definitely been able to walk or hike somewhere (if she wasn’t incapacitated in some way) and come across someone to ask for help.

    How else does someone just leave someone? Let’s say they’re on a hike. Does he just mad dash back to the vehicle and take off without her? Doubt it, but even so there would eventually be someone who came across her.

    Same if he would have driven off while she’s in a porta potty. There are lots and lots of tourists through Yellowstone (been there a few times) and she would have been able to cross paths eventually with someone to ask for help so I don’t think he simply left her.

    It’s more plausible that he pushed her off an edge somewhere and he’s totally done for because even IF it were an accident, who in their right mind just leaves and goes home and acts like she never existed?? This guy is something else.

  7. Yeah, of course. I think they may have already established this. That text bought him crucial time, but may be all the jury needs to hear. imo.

    And I'm certainly praying they are able to pinpoint from where exactly that text was sent.

    I thought I read somewhere that Gabby's dad moved to Florida to be nearer her. So why didn't he help Brian's dad move their stuff from the storage unit? Why did Brian need to fly home?

    It's only important if it shows that BL had a pattern of abusive control over GP. The incident is far too ambiguous to know if this is true.

    Yup…

    it’s possible her parents paid for the hotel because they knew there was something going on with the relationship and wanted to give her a break…(or they didn’t want her staying in a van alone while he was gone, I guess)

    I do get the feeling there’s a lot more background to this - that both families have info about the state of the relationship - which may be why the police have asked them not to discuss it ‍♀️

    Why would she dare him to do something she was terrified he would do? That makes no sense accept to victim blame.

    I concur. One of the fastest moving threads I’ve ever seen on here(granted I’ve only been on here a few years). I think I’ve only ever seen the Delphi threads move faster.

    Man. Talk about going for their 15 minutes of fame. I don't see how this is relevant to her going missing a month and a half later in a different state.

    Theories similar to this one are what I currently subscribe to, but it's just so frustrating that he won't divulge ANY information to LE (from what we've heard). I get it from a legal standpoint, but I feel AWFUL for GP's family.

    Is there a possibility that BL was in communication with GPs parents between coming back to Fla and GP being reported missing?

    What if they split up and he drives back. He tells them that she is wherever, with GPs mother already doubting that she had sent the last text, she doesn't believe what BL says. GP family could say something like “We are going to go to the police unless you really tell us what happened.”

    Would communication like that be something a lawyer or police would make public?

    If BL lawyers up as soon as he gets back that shows guilt. If he lawyers up 9/10 it’s a different story. Does that make sense?
